Custom Avatars
 
Is it possible to use a custom avatar on this site. I a member of another site that uses the same forum software (clubstogie.com) and they allow customized avatars. They also have a lot of other extra stuff that the software allows.

It is technically possible but board rules prohibit it. I think the general concensus among the board members is that those kinds of things(custom avatars, crazy sigs, etc...) dirty up the board. I know I like the clean and organized look TWP has.

Gotcha, I understand. I mostly curious because the other board I am on using the same software has so many other bells and whistles. Some of them actually cause issues on the board. For example, they allow you to change other peoples titles if you have enough virtual money (they call it CS Bux). That seems to just piss ppl off.

I agree this board is much cleaner.

The one thing I wouldn't mind seeing is a "karma" system. That's where you can basically give people props or call them out, and it works like a plus/minus system. It might help separate the wheat from the chafe, although I'm not sure where I would fall.

They do that at clubstogie.com it only causes issues. The people who have been there the longest end up abusing it because they have so many points they can deduct points without worrying about their points being deducted.

That's a good point. I've never used a board that has that system, so I have no practical experience with it. I see how it could devolve into a meaningless system.

Maybe the best idea is to just let [U]me[/U] ding people as I see fit. Yeah, that sounds good.

yeah the points thing never ends well. and it always ends. i have never been on a board where it became permanent.

I am on another forum and you get "reputation points" for good posts and good uploads(alot of illegal movies and music lol). You can get negative points for dumb posts and stupid cussing. The members give out points but can only do a limited amount per day and only once to one person until they have given points to about 20 other people.

The thing is, if you have alot of reputation then you when you give out points you will give out alot more(or take away more if it is negative). That way a random member who doesnt post alot and contribute to the forum, cannot ruin a good members reputation.

I am not suggesting a change, but it is a very clean add-on that adds another good element to the site.
